Ideally located for discovering the Roseland Peninsular, the cottage offered us all the comforts of a home-from-home and we were very sad to leave. All the amenities in the cottage were perfectly ordered and in great condition, and both the bedroom and lounge were comfortable after a day's exploring. We cooked in the cottage twice during our week and had all the appliances and gadgets we needed in the kitchen. The patio outside was a lovely sun-trap, perfect for sunny breakfasts or lunches lounging outside. Ann and Graham were friendly and welcoming and we were happy they would have helped us with any problems (but we didn't have any!). We loved our stay and would happily return, and recommend it to our friends and family.

The cottage is very homely and cosy, and all very comfortable, the main bedroom had the lovely view of the harbour to wake up to through a small window, and we could here the sea at nightime with the window open. Everything worked very well, especially the dishwasher! The only slight downside was that the rear patio is also access to the neighbouring properties, and as we had our dog with us, we had to make sure both gates were closed, but there were very few people using the right of way to the other couple of houses adjacent, and they were all very friendly and helpful. Lovely cottage and location with very friendly locals and other holiday makers. Would certainly return thankyou.
